Remember that KLRU taping that a lot of us went to in February, featuring virtuosos Bion Tsang and Anton Nel? Well, the show will appear tonight (August 26th) on the Austin PBS show, In Context.
Here’s more information:
AUSTIN, TEXAS – Cellist Bion Tsang and pianist Anton Nel make their PBS broadcast debut as cello/piano collaborators on Thursday, August 26, at 8 p.m. on KLRU-TV, Austin PBS. The half-hour IN CONTEXT special was recorded in February 2010 in KLRU Studio 6A, home of the venerable live music series Austin City Limits. KLRU’s IN CONTEXT art series presents performances from some of Austin’s leading artists and cultural organizations.
(The half-hour TV special features cello/piano works from Boccherini, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Beethoven and Brahms.)
KMFA announcer Jules Brandon blogged about it at the time (her first blog entry, I think!) and by all accounts the performance was stellar. Austin is so lucky to have these two musicians in our very own city. We highly recommend watching this performance!
